Kofi Annan, seventh secretary-general of the United Nations, will take part in a Jackson Institute Town Hall Meeting on Thursday, Feb.7, at 4:30 p.m. in Levinson Auditorium of Yale Law School, 127 Wall St. The event is open to the public.
Annan served two terms as secretary-general from 1997 to 2006. One of his main priorities in that role was a comprehensive program of reform aimed at revitalizing the U.N. and making the international system more effective. Since leaving the U.N., Annan has continued to press for better policies to meet the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable through his work with the Kofi Annan Foundation and other venues.
During the Town Hall Meeting Annan will be interviewed by John Negroponte, the Brady-Johnson Distinguished Practitioner in Grand Strategy at Yale and senior fellow at the Jackson Institute. Negroponte is a former U.S. deputy secretary of state, first director of the Office of National Intelligence, and former U.S. ambassador to the U.N.
